EtherCAT, do you mean the fieldbus type? Jini certainly looks like a 
good communications platform for SCADA solutions. All one needs is a 
small ARM-7 based sensor/controller and GCJ for creating a flashable 
image and your on the road.

Anybody here know of such a scenario in the wild?


I would love to work on a SCADA kernel completly written in Java.
